Test color laser HP Color Laserjet CP1215 and CP1515n: Layout I: Paper, Connections, Handling

von Ulrich Junker

Hinweis: Für mindestens einen in diesem Artikel erwähnten Drucker ist der ausführliche Testbericht "Flache Farblaser von HP" verfügbar.

In the box you find the printer, four cartriges with low yield content (750 pages for each color and Black), an installation CD with miscellaneous additional software, and a power cord. A USB cable is not included.

Both printers are nearly identical in construction, the differences are shown in a table at the bottom of this page.

Paper handling

The paper tray (picture left side) accommodates 150 sheets. The CP1515n has an additional single sheet feeder (picture right side). To insert paper we recommend to fully take out the somewhat rickety tray. This way it is easier to center the media.


If the paper tray is empty, you find an onscreen prompt to insert paper (picture right side). After that you are supposed to push the "Go"- or "Select"-button, to continue printing. You will look for both buttons in vain, there is none. Following inherent logic ("It must be something green!") you press the "Start"-button: Printing is resumed.


Paper deposit

According to HP it can hold up to 125 media, an unexpedient solution, since the paper tray houses up to 150 media.

The tray can take up 150 sheets without problems, the paper stack becomes somewhat untidy at the end, however. If you plan a (manual) doublesided print after, you have to readjust the sheets thoroughly.


Paper jam

Paper jams are not encountered in our tests, if you insert the sheets properly. They happen, if you put in too much paper. And that occurs quite frequently.

Druckerchannel recommendation: Pull out the paper tray completely, if you want to replenish it.

To clear a paper jam you open the rear cover. That needs a lot of force, the lever deforms in a way you will think it is going to break off. But in the end the latch will open.

Connections

The CP1215 (picture left side) connects via USB, the CP1515n (picture right side) features an additional network connection.

An optional USB network adapter (Q6275A) is available for the CP1215. It´s price is approximately 60 Euros. And the CP1515n/ni can be upgraded to Wlan (Q6259A) for approximately 50 Euros. All available connections can be found in this table.

Handling

The two laser printers have different control panels (CP1215, picture left side), the CP1515n (picture right side) has a double-spaced display which is hard to read. You have to step back at least three feet to read what it says. That complicates handling.


In a room with ceiling lighting readability worsens even more (picture right side).

Scouring through the menu becomes a rigmarole.

Model range

As enhanced model the CP1515ni comes as "Photo-Imaging-Model". More on that in this table.
